US Senate Candidates' Top Issues

May 28, 2014, 6:01 PM by Don Jorgensen

US Senate Candidates' Top Issues

The June primary is less than a week away. With five republican candidates running for the US Senate, a lot of voters may still be undecided. Tonight we begin a series of special reports on the candidates and where they stand on the issues. Tonight we talk about their first priorities if elected.

"If we are going to talk issues, it's the debt and the economy," US Senate Candidate Jason Ravnsborg said.

Ravnsborg says America has to get people working again. One way to do that he says is to cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent.

"If we do that we can create about 5.3 million jobs over the next 10 years," Ravnsborg said.

Former governor Mike Rounds says his top priority is replacing Obamacare.

"I think you can eliminate employer mandates and I think you can still have health care reform in which you promise people that their insurance can't be cancelled, that they can move from one company to another, what we really need are more options that are available," Rounds said.

State Senator Larry Rhoden, who has been airing a commercial attacking President Obama, feels strongly Obamacare needs to be repealed. 

"South Dakota's next Senator needs to lead the fight against President Obama and his liberal agenda to do that our next senator needs to be a bold conservative with integrity, conservative values, a backbone and leadership skills," Rhoden said.

Dr. Annette Bosworth has a 10 point pledge to South Dakotans if she's elected.

"Number one for me is till Obamacare, it's the reason I stepped into the race was how much our government is trying to do inside the examine room that shouldn't be there," Dr. Bosworth said.

State Representative Stace Nelson wants to cut government spending.

"One of the top priorities any of our next U.S. Senators should have is trying to help get our national debt and our economy back on track," Nelson said. "Congress is out of control, the over controlling regulations, we've got to get that in check and have someone out there who will actually vote to cut our national debt and that excessive government spending."
